How do I get to my message history with a specific patron?

When I visit a Patron’s profile page, I can see their current pledge, their lifetime support, and there’s a little box I can use to write a message to them.

How do I see what messages we’ve exchanged in the past? Right now, I think what I have to do is go to https://www.patreon.com/messages and scroll a lot, hoping I notice their name as it goes by. I’ve had about 600 patrons over the course of my campaign, so that’s a lot of scrolling.

I would love love love the option to have in-Patreon messages mirrored to a real email account. Online email systems (e.g. gmail) are so amazingly searchable, it’s painful to have to use this little orange thing.

There isn’t a direct way outside of messages that i’m aware of. Their message system is kind of the pits :confused:

Ok, this is one system that I know there are a lot of complaints about! I don’t have any updates on this just yet, but know that this is definitely something the product team is well aware of. It’s painful.
